CNN Op-Ed Calls For Obama to Declare “National State of Emergency” to Gut 2nd Amendment

Martial law-style move would “scare” gun rights groups into submission


A CNN op-ed piece by a leading gun control advocate has called on President Obama to declare a “national state of emergency” so that he can gut the Second Amendment.

Elliot Fineman, of the National Gun Victims Action Council, wants the president to follow through on his recent gun control efforts by “monitoring ammunition sales and banning those on the terror watch list from buying guns.”

This could be achieved without congressional approval by Obama enacting a “National State of Emergency (that) scares the gun lobby and pro-gun lawmakers,” writes Fineman.

In other words, Fineman is calling on Obama to use martial-law style powers in order to water down the Second Amendment and neutralize efforts by gun rights groups to oppose such a move.

“Why have you not declared a state of emergency to halt the Gun Violence Epidemic?” Fineman implores Obama.

petition linked from the CNN article invites support for a “National Emergencies Act” that would hand Obama “the power and responsibility to declare a state of emergency when the government lacks the procedures and capacity to address an unchecked natural or man-made public health epidemic.”

The story is couched in emotional terms given that Fineman lost his son to a murderer who was able to legally purchase a gun despite previously being in a mental institution.

Fineman also demands that Obama, “force the gun manufacturers to make smart guns (guns that will only fire if the fingerprint of the owner matches the trigger) by requiring that the government only purchase smart guns.”

Whether this would make the hundreds of millions of firearms without smart technology illegal by default is not addressed in the article.

As we have previously highlighted, Second Amendment advocates are warning that Americans who hold “alternative views” could be declared mentally ill and have their firearms seized. Americans who follow “prepper” lifestyles have already had their guns taken as a result of falsely being labeled mentally ill.

I can understand that this guy suffered an unbearable loss. It is the system that failed ! This guy needs to pay attention to what is going on around him.    Those that want to take away 2nd amendment rights have body guards around the ying yang !  They are all armed !   

I think he suffers from brain dead-ism, and he is mostly responsible for the way the state of the country is now

He he tries it CNN you will be on the top of the list of the lying liberal media to be destroyed. Martial law would include congress and the military. King Obama can't just do it. And the majority of congress and the military may just order Obama's arrest.

   Either way the people will take care of it.

They are worried that a state of emergency will scare the gun adovates into submission.  Not a chance all it would do is start a civil war and maybe this "Piece Of totally Useless Shit" will be at the top of the list......Just arm up and rock and roll......

My guess is if the Muslim maggott does that the red necks will go after Finerman

If he does try to confiscate guns, it will AUTOMATICALLY become a NATIONAL EMERGENCY, for him, and anyone who sides with him!!!

We all know that the government needs to be gutted not our God given blessed 2nd Amendment !

Only need 34 States for the Convention Of States to stop the Constitution haters inside our government.

Why isn't this done  ????????????

"A CNN op-ed piece by a leading gun control advocate has called on President Obama to declare a “national state of emergency” so that he can gut the Second Amendment".

The above said, how about if CNN does the news coverage, the "leading gun control advocate" ask if he can go with the President, and if he will make that announcement at the Malheur location in Oregon???

Hope they stand one in front of the other....

Apparently Mr. FINEMAN, wants to punish every law abiding gun owner seller, and manufacturer in America for some seriously disturbed mental case that killed his son. We support Israel and believe that the Jews are God` chosen people, BUT we are also getting tired of progressive Jews in America either trying to take our rights away, or secularism ou4 country.We are sorry for your loss Mr. FINEMAN but that doesn't`t give you the right to try to take something from the rest of us. Back off!

Elliott, recommending that an elected official declare a national emergency when none exists does in my opinion, solicit the overthrow of our government.  The FBI should be knocking on your door.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
